Rose McGowan + Davey Detail’s Wedding: Part 1

Rose McGowan Wedding

Happy Monday, lovelies! We’re SO excited to start the week off with the gorgeous wedding of one of our favorite actresses – Rose McGowan – and her artist husband, Davey Detail. It made my day when I learned that Rose is a fan of GWS and wanted us to share her special day! :)

Brides-to-be will be happy to hear that Rose had an absolute blast planning her wedding. I know I was a bit nervous about all of the work ahead of me when I began planning my wedding, but once I got into it, I just loved the entire process! It’s always nice to hear of other brides that loved the planning process as much as me….and it’s super encouraging for brides-to-be that may be intimidated by their wedding planning to-do list. Rose was also sweet enough to share some of her favorite memories from the day, offer advice to other brides, and let us see all the gorgeous details she incorporated! Thanks so much Rose!!

Rose + Davey’s whimsical + romantic wedding took place on Oct 12th at The Paramour Mansion in Silverlake, California. It was planned by the talented team at Amber Events and photographed by Callaway Gable. And since Davey is an artist, he designed their wedding invitations seen below! Love that…

More about the Paramour Mansion from wedding planner Amber Gustafson: “Built in 1923 by silent film star Antonio Moreno and his wife and oil heiress, Daisy Canfield Danziger, The Paramour Mansion is 22,000 square feet and 4.2 acres of amazing. Set on a hill in Silverlake, California, the juxtaposition of the mansion’s old world romance against the downtown LA skyline is breathtaking. The mansion was convent for Franciscan Nuns from 1950 to 1980 and in 1998 the estate was purchased by restaurateur Dana Hollister. Dana traveled the world collecting unique artifacts and has filled the mansion with priceless antiques and oddities such as a taxidermied zebra and polar bear.” Oh, and it is also supposedly haunted!

Rose looked stunning in her Monique Lhuillier gown. And I absolutely adore her bright, berry-hued lips…Such a fun choice!

And how pretty is her bouquet of hanging Amaranthus and Lisianthus by Holly Flora?!  I love that she added a locket containing a photo of herself and her father on one side and her dog that passed away on the other.

From Rose: My inspiration for the day was the flowers of the South. My husband is Jewish and I’m Irish. I wanted to mix both of our heritages. The green of the green Amaranth flower represented my Celtic side. The Chuppah was all amaranth and roses, placed horizontally. I wanted to create a magical bubble of beauty and love for Davey and me and for our loved ones.

Jon Klassen Inspired California Forest Elopement

elopement

Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back is one of my favorite books to read to Sienna, so when I saw this ridiculously sweet styled elopement pop into my inbox, I have to say, I was super excited to share it with you all! While this shoot is only loosely based on the story, I’m convinced it will seriously inspire any of you who are planning an elopement or vow renewal. Imagine a beautiful, relaxed day slowly unfolding + filled with charming, yet simple, details: a hand-tied wildflower bouquet, a ride in an old VW bus to a secluded mountain top setting and fun paper goods based on your favorite children’s book.

Big thanks to Samantha Smith Arroyo for the beautiful photography and to Virginia Smith for the planning + design. Are any of you fans of I Want My Hat Back?

If you are a fan of the book, you will recognize the sweet pup in the red hat as a nod to the book. He looks so adorable, doesn’t he?! :)

A Rustic Meets Modern Los Angeles Wedding: Lindsey + Will

bride and groom

Lindsey + Will are both artists by trade and their work has taken the lead in their adventures together thus far. It brought them together, it was the reason they moved from Texas to Los Angeles and it played a big part in their rustic-meets-modern Los Angeles wedding. The clean lined, greenhouse-like feel of their venue, Elysian, set a fun, playful tone for the day and provided the perfect environment for Lindsey + Will to incorporate a slew of handmade details that helped tell their guests their story. And I love the relaxed approach they took when it came to planning. Here’s a bit more about that from Lindsey:

Will and I are a very laid back couple and rarely are we formal. We don’t stick to too many traditions, in fact the only tradition we kept for our wedding was we didn’t want to see each other the entire day before the ceremony. The rest we made up as we went along. What was most important to us, was that we threw a great party, where a wedding also happened to take place. The typical wedding decor and demeanor just isn’t our style, so we aimed for an artsy, rustic, and whimsical affair with good music, things to play with, a mountain of BBQ, and plenty to drink.

Big thanks to Jessica M. Wood Photography for sharing these gorgeous images with us today + congratulations to Lindsey + Will!

The pops of berry red throughout the bridal party attire (and wedding design) was a really lovely choice. It looks so great with their otherwise neutral color palette.

And I’m just a little bit obsessed with the adorable place settings! The striped cutlery bags are the cutest!

After we were announced for our grand entrance, we sat in front of everyone at our sweetheart table. We couldn't stop remarking on how everything turned out just as we had imagined it. On top of that, there didn't seem to be one person that wasn't talking to another person - we had pulled it off! We were relieved, in love, and ready to enjoy our first party as husband and wife.

Be true to yourself. Don't doubt yourself or your ideas. Be sure to choose things that you truly enjoy and that reflect you. Your guests will love anything you pick because you will be giving them a glimpse inside your world. Most importantly, have fun, and I mean SO much fun! This is your celebration!
